Gaskets come in many different shapes and sizes. They are manufactured specifically and precisely for various parts on different vehicles. Precision is very necessary when these gaskets are made because they should not allow for any leakage of gas or pressure from the car's internal system to the outside. This keeps a high amount of pressure in the vehicle maintaining compression and a vacuum seal.

The metal parts of your vehicle are manufactured for specific measurements. Different gaskets will fit different models and parts accordingly. There are small irregularities that occur during manufacturing that make the surface of the parts potentially not perfectly flat. The gaskets will expand in between the parts to create a seal.

Specifically, gaskets are used to keep pressure inside the engine body. This is otherwise known as compression. The gaskets fill the gaps and act as long-term bonding agents to these affixed parts.
